Harry Kane had the perfect 19th birthday present - 90 minutes for the first team against Liverpool.

The striker impressed Andre Villas-Boas with his performance leading the line in the heat of Baltimore on Saturday.

Indeed, the Head Coach said afterwards: “It was a tremendous effort, he was there for 90 minutes and showed the signs of the quality of a boy who only turned 19 today.”

Harry gave his all against the Premier League experience of Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel and had one of the few chances to break the deadlock, flashing an effort inches wide in the first half.

Aaron Lennon also struck the post as it finished goalless in front of 42,000 fans at Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium.

“It was tough, a good game in pre-season, a game that gets you fit and strong against good opposition,” said Harry, who did so well on loan at Millwall last season.

“You learn in games like that, both from the players you play with and players you play against.”

Harry was delighted that Andre had the faith to both start and play him for the full 90.

“It shows a great trust in me, it’s great to have that,” he added. “If believes in me, then I can only believe in myself.

“It was great to play against the likes of Gerrard and Carragher, players I grew up admiring, and playing with the Spurs players, that will only help me.

“I enjoyed every minute of it. That's what I want to do, to play for Tottenham Hotspur.”
